RECORDING RESULTS

• When you’re on opening lead, your first priority after the auction is to make the opening lead. This should be done before entering the contract into the Bridgemate or writing on your personal scorer.

• The same applies to dummy – after the opening lead is faced, spread your hand before doing anything else.

Thanks to Sunshine Coast Bridge Club
